Chlo offers upbeat, feel-good vibes on new EP ‘Make it Make Sense’
HOUSTON, TX – If there’s one word that describes Chloe Hargrove, it’s “entertainer.”
The fast-rising young artist originally from Kansas City, Missouri has been lighting up the Deep South for the past couple of years – creating a buzz with her unique sound and style – and now she’s ready to drop her second EP “Make it Make Sense.” And if there’s one thing fans of her music can agree on, it’s that she is the ultimate entertainer.
“My gift is being able to entertain people,” said the artist who goes by the stage name Chlo. “I love making people laugh or bringing good music or anything entertainment-wise. I’m just entertaining … period. I’m fun to be around and just make people feel good, and that shows in my music.”
Her six-song project showcases that entertaining talent to full effect. Following two years after her first successful EP, “Make it Make Sense” showcases a variety of vibes against lyrics that explore self-motivation and the drive and ambition necessary to realize one’s dreams. In Chlo’s case, this pursuit of a successful music career is something she had to convince herself to invest in. Having worked in the corporate world for a few years, she longed to pursue music full-time, but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that she decided to put her all into that endeavor and commit to the time and financial investment it would take to realize that dream.
“That’s what the title of this EP means – to do stuff with a purpose,” she said. “You have to know your purpose. I know I’m talented, and music is my passion and what I’m gifted with. I’m making it make sense and putting my best foot forward. I’m putting my all into every song and showing how versatile I can be. Every song is different, but every song is me.”
Chlo said who she is will shine bright through every song she creates, and at the end of the day she wants to be known for being 100 percent real with everything she does. She prides herself in making fun and catchy music, but she’s also quick to point out that she has bars and uses different flows across her various songs. Her biggest inspirations are Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake, and she credits them for motivating her to really focus on making good music that is also going to make people say, “Dang! This girl can write!” While some artists today adopt a persona or caricature, Chlo said every lyric and performance will be true to who she is – “goofy and crazy and funny.”
“I can be a bad bitch when I need to, but at the end of the day I’m goofy and I like to put a smile on people’s faces,” she said. “People will see that real personality and love me for that.”
The debut single from her new project is a song called “Gang With Me.” The upbeat vibe is a perfect pairing for lyrics that hype up the group of friends and family with whom she surrounds herself. The video even includes many of her friends and family – both from Houston and from her original hometown of Kansas City. She said it’s a song that’s all about “repping your people,” and as such should be relatable to a wide global audience.
Chlo said she’s excited for new audiences to discover her music, and that she plans on releasing even more music over the course of the next few months.
